Painting finished--unveiling tomorrow!

Alright! My painting on the red ground is complete. I started it two days ago and finished painting it on my patio today. Whenever I spend several hours painting on the patio my feet hurt the next day. (Concrete floor).
I painted the painting expressly for our new August show "Eight+, Artist's Choice" at O'Connor's in Multnomah Village. The painting is wet, but I am hanging it tomorrow anyway. I have noticed (from other O'Connor's exhibits) that the restaurant patrons can be trusted not to touch paintings, so I feel comfortable taking it in "fresh off the easel".
I'll post the painting after it is on the wall tomorrow. Wish my luck--I hope it doesn't get rejected like that other time. j/k.

Looking forward to seeing your painting! I have the same trouble standing on concrete floors (I guess we all do) and have found a nice rubber cushioned mat at Lowes that works really well. It'll keep you from getting varicose veins.

Can't wait to see your painting, Celeste. I'll be checking in tomorrow!
